Do you ever use the Copic Coloring Chart when deciding what colors to use on your images? I ALWAYS do!! Well... if you do, you know this is a full 8.5 X 11 piece of card stock. I pull it out for EVERY card I do and look at every single color when deciding what I want. AND... then I have sheets of paper with different hair colors on them and color blends, etc. Enough, already!!! I decided to take my little pack of index cards and put them all together!! My color image is by the Saturated Canary, "Ruffles the Clown".
I started by cutting all the color families on my Copic Chart and pasting them onto my cards.
I added tabs to coordinate with the color family.
Then I added pages that showed hair color and skin color combinations.
And last, I added cards that showed the different combinations of colors I like to use together. I tabbed all the cards for ease of flipping through.
Now I have this neat, organized and small compact booklet that I can take anywhere (even throw in my purse), sit beside me as I color and it's all in one place and quick. No more messy pages of colors, no more dirty color chart with bent up corners!!
There is a lot of space left on each card to add more combinations and even extra pages in case I find combinations I want to keep track of later, like... colors I use for trees.. favorite flower colors... etc.
I hope this has given you some tips on how you might organize your color charts and choices. It certainly has made mine a lot less messy and a whole lot more accessible!! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!! *HUGS*
